             Using Flex-Algo for Segment Routing based VTN
                 draft-zhu-lsr-isis-sr-vtn-flexalgo-01

Abstract

   As defined in I-D.ietf-teas-enhanced-vpn, enhanced VPN (VPN+) aims to
   provide enhanced VPN service to support the needs of enhanced
   isolation and stringent performance requirements.  VPN+ requires
   integration between the overlay VPN and the underlay network.  A
   Virtual Transport Network (VTN) is a virtual network which consists
   of a subset of network topology and network resources allocated from
   the underlay network.  A VTN could be used as the underlay for one or
   a group of VPN+ services.

   I-D.dong-lsr-sr-enhanced-vpn defines the IGP mechanisms with
   necessary extensions to build a set of Segment Routing (SR) based
   VTNs.  This document describes a simplified mechanism to build the SR
   based VTNs using SR Flex-Algo together with minor extensions to IGP
   L2 bundle.

1.  Introduction

   Enhanced VPN (VPN+) is an enhancement to VPN services to support the
   needs of new applications, particularly including the applications
   that are associated with 5G services.  These applications require
   enhanced isolation and have more stringent performance requirements
   than that can be provided with traditional overlay VPNs.  Thus these
   properties require integration between the underlay and the overlay
   networks.  [I-D.ietf-teas-enhanced-vpn] specifies the framework of
   enhanced VPN and describes the candidate component technologies in
   different network planes and layers.  An enhanced VPN may be used for
   5G transport network slicing, and will also be of use in other
   generic scenarios.

   To meet the requirement of enhanced VPN services, a number of virtual
   transport networks (VTN) can be created, each with a subset of the
